Eighteen months after the groundbreaking ceremony, Micron Technology marked the grand opening of the Fab 10 expanded NAND flash memory fabrication facility in Singapore this week.
With over 7,500 team members at four manufacturing facilities in Singapore and a history and partnership with the government and Economic Development Board (EDB), dating as far back as 1998, this is an important milestone for Micron. The company is adding approximately 255,000 square feet to the facility through this expansion, almost doubling the cleanroom space, as the company expects to increase the 3D NAND production.
With tool installations under way, Micron’s initial manufacturing output is expected later this year with substantial output in 2017. The total cost for the expansion is approximately $4 billion incurred over a number of years beginning in fiscal 2016.
